Dick Vitale is outraged Colin Kaepernick still doesn't have an National Football League job

In the interim, a petition to boycott games if Kaepernick doesn't play this season is up to almost 80K in signatures.

The "Do the Right Thing" director shared a flier on Twitter Tuesday morning announcing a "United We Stand" rally at 345 Park Avenue on August 23 at 5 p.m.

On, more than 100,000 people have signed an online petition vowing now to buy National Football League merchandise or watch games as long as Kaepernick remains off of an National Football League roster. The injury forced the Dolphins to explore other quarterback options as Tannehill and the team weighed whether he'd need season-ending surgery and Kaepernick's name reportedly came up.

It's unclear whether Kaepernick is involved in the rally or even wants it to happen.

Others said it was about time someone defended Kaepernick from the NFL.

While a handful of players around the league joined in similar protests, the ire has been squarely aimed at Kaepernick.

Kaepernick has been a free agent since he opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers last March.

The former Heisman Trophy victor at Texas A&M, who played just two seasons with the Browns before more or less quitting football to hit the celebrity party circuit full-time, appears to have turned a corner in the past year.

According to ESPN, the Baltimore Ravens was one of the last places for Kaepernick to land but the team has thrown its support behind Quarterback Ryan Mallet. Much of this has stemmed from his choice to kneel during the National Anthem that garnered much attention well beyond the world of sports. "I appreciate you not just talking about helping the people, but actually going out and doing the work", Kaepernick wrote to Cole on social media.

Manziel has made it known to teams that he's interested in returning to the NFL.

"I wish you the best in life".
